RE: Error downloading kickstart file

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Is it possible that the nic that is being used post PXE is not the same that is being used for pxe ?

 

 

If so I would recommend to change the ksdevice from eth2 to the mac of the pxe system, that should work, and the same nic will be used regardless of how linux detects it

 

Also I can’t remember the correct writing for the nfs: thingie, you might want to look that one up  and make sure is fine.

 

Cheers

Hi,

 

During kickstart installation of a sun x4270 machines using dhcp/pxe the below error is obtained while the nfs file download. There are already some relevant bugs but I would like to how we can debug at this stage, i.e., what are the possible debugs?

The configurations seems to be fine, as the same is working on other set of machines. For instance, the pxelinux.cfg/"Hex" file consists:

 

default linux

 

label linux

        kernel red_hat/vmlinuz

        append initrd=red_hat/initrd.img ramdisk_size=65536 vga=no ip=130.130.21.121 netmask=255.255.255.0 ksdevice=eth2 ks=nfs:130.130.21.120:/myshare/ks.cfg acpi=off console=ttyS0,19200

 

in /etc/exports the directory is exported:

 

/myshare *(rw,sync)

 

 

nfs services are fine and the exported directories can be mounted on from other machines in the network:

 

 rpcinfo -p

   program vers proto   port

    100000    2   tcp    111  portmapper

    100000    2   udp    111  portmapper
